Regional Infrastructure Investment

The region was home to 347,500 people in 2021 and is expected to grow to more than 404,250 people by 2041. This substantial growth will require significant enabling infrastructure investment and the creation of over 30,000 new jobs on the Central Coast.

To respond to this demand, RDA Central Coast has coordinated the development of the agreed list of key enabling infrastructure needed on the Central Coast to create local jobs, drive further investment and assist in unlocking the full economic potential of our region.

Since the launch of the initial Central Coast Enabling Infrastructure Priority List in 2016, this initiative has attracted over $2B in essential infrastructure funding for the Central Coast through collaborative advocacy efforts from all regional stakeholders.

The 2022 Key Enabling Projects Prospectus was endorsed by Council & RDA Central Coast in November 2022 that resulted 12 projects of significance being currently identified as infrastructure funding priorities for the Central Coast.

The projects contained in the prospectus lay a strong foundation for further growth and investment and will directly assist in generating required jobs and driving further investment within our region .

Consultation for the 2023 - 2027 Central Coast Enabling Infrastructure Priority List will commence mid 2023.
